My journey through, Religion and Personal growth was very informative, insightful, increased my perception, and I did a lot of self-reflection while taking this course. I experienced the greatest learning starting with what religion meant. I always felt God’s presence when I prayed however, learning that religion is the fear and awe one feels in the presence of God’s sprit was an amazing moment for me. I now understood why worshiping God had such a profound effect on me since childhood. If you sincerely from your heart give God love he always love you in return.
The least amount of learning I received from this course, if I had to pick something would be, very little use of videos or music to assist me with learning in this course.
What I would add to this course is including an actual video of a sermon’s message. When you actually hear a sermon being given be an anointed person of God it helps you have a clearer understanding of God’s word and it touches you in personal way. Yet, you’re learning God’s holy word, and teachings as the messages’ he wants us to understand so we can live our lives within his biblical teachings. Such as the “Original Sin”, every Christian needs to be aware of this fact. Everyone is born with sin; therefore, it is innate in all humans inherited from Adam and Eve for disobeying God’s instructions. The essential vice of evil being pride, because God wants us to be close to him by giving up living in sin. God doesn’t want his people to compare

From the research that I have done forming the three research articles, I have concluded that the authors who wrote the research journal, the magazine, and the book advise to not work out heavily every time. The authors suggest that if I do have a busy schedule, one that does usually fit gym time in the daily commute, that I should at least incorporate some level of physical activity whenever I have the free time. Simply walking at a fast pace on the way to work or class, or just getting out of a chair and stretching is beneficial for most, if not all, people. I can use the advice given to me so that I can be constantly active even when not in the gym, so that I don’t increase body fat percentages.
In this paper I plan to briefly review what happened during the counseling demonstration. Next, I will discuss two basic counseling skills that I believe I used well, and one that I struggled with. Finally, I will discuss the next steps I will take in order to improve my counseling skills.
Upon completing the "Self-Assessment on South Asian American Culture Issues", I scored an average of six. I was not surprised at my knowledge of Asian cultures, mainly comprises of cultures pertaining to Japan and China; my knowledge of the South Asian countries is an admitted weakness. Furthermore, I believe my average score correlates to the plethora of cultures within the Asian continent that, while I may have a strong baseline understanding of Asian culture, there is significant diversity within Asian continent countries that more in depth cultural learning is required. For instance, learning more about reticence, where youth are preferred to be seen and not heard was an unknown cultural concept to me. Likewise, I was aware of the myriad
The clocks at LIH appeared to be online and communicating to the WDM. I began my check to start data collection that is when I realized the clocks are not operating normally. I tried to reboot, initialize, and test both clocks though it appeared the clocks were in the process of successfully completing the task, it failed. Within the last two hours, I managed to get both clocks to complete a data collection successfully. I contacted Kari, LIH Coordination Center and request to have a TSO swipe their badge on both clocks located at the Checkpoint and Break Room, respectively.
did not fare as well as I expected on my portfolio. I enjoyed this class immensely too, including my professor, Dr. Susan DeLuke. I learned a great deal during the course as well as after the course from Dr. DeLuke, with the multiple homework assignments, and papers, and achieved very good grades under her guidance. However, applying it to the portfolio was challenging. It was a great deal to absorb, retain and get accurate in a short amount of time and I have a tendency to let tasks likes these overwhelm me. I know I could have performed better on my portfolio now. I went from an A in this class to a C+ because of my final portfolio. I thought I did well on it, and I did not. It was very disappointing results for both the student and Professor
Now lets get down to my opinion on the class. I must say I have been surprised by what passes as a class on spiritual formation and transformation. Which is not to say that I don't agree with some things about the class, but all in all I'm very disappointed. When we first started this class I had had hopes that it was going to be refreshing and full of sound ideas. By week 4 or 5 I had abandoned all hope of
Throughout this course and learning more about God and the different perspectives on God. Everyone has a view on God and it starts on how you were brought up, whether your family is big on religion and the Christianity teaching or they are not and believe that there is no God. Like I said before in the last paper. I am a Christian, and I believe and have faith in God and I feel like the reason for this is how I was raised and how I taught that having faith in God and following his teachings would make me a better person and closer to God and that someday I will go to heaven, also going to church every Sunday to worship and to praise God. It was something that my family instilled in me that going to church worshiping and following Gods teachings would make me a better man and also a man of God, also like how we talked the cross in class, at my house I have a wall up my stairs that is covered in cross and in ever one of our rooms we have a crucifix on top of the door. Before attending this class, I was very one sided that everyone should have faith in God and that if you don’t believe or have faith in God you are bad person.
Over the past semester we have reviewed and learned about so many ideas, beliefs, and concepts. The topics that really stood out were Faith vs. Fantasy, Exclusivism vs. Inclusivism, and the faith foundations of a Christ-centered Theist. These concepts have made me reflect back on my own beliefs and why I started to believe in God and the Bible in the first place. These three notions have induced me to believe and build a stronger trust and relationship with God.
The first student to perform for the fundraiser was Candy Tsai. She performed Arabeske, Op.18. Candy tends to use more of her arm muscles when playing rather than wrists. She sets a great example of pedal use throughout her piece. Although she uses pedal, she distinguishes her articulation correctly. Overall, she was fantastic but could use more dynamic contrast. The next student to perform for the fundraiser was Joshua Tessler. As a performer, he did not start until he made adjustments to the seat. Once he was comfortable, one could see how graceful he was. He was constantly moving throughout his piece and at one point, he crosses his hands to perform.
In what ways are the data gathered from others (i.e. the data that serve as the basis of your Reflected Best Self Portrait) similar or different from your own perceptions of your best self?
I have gone through various phases in my life not realizing how my behavior could have been affecting others. I never paid attention to my leadership skills. Even though my personal assessment resulted in me being a guardian in the Kiersy Temperament Sorter (kiersy, n.d.), I never seen the leadership skills I possess. In my years of experience, I have found myself being more optimistic in business and personal relationships. I may fall into the category of Theory Y with characteristics of Likert’s participative leadership style, as well as a servant leader. Being a servant leader may compliment my participative leadership style described in Donald Clark’s Survey of Leadership Style (Clark, n.d.) in a sense of me being a student that become an instructor; I understand what it takes because I have been the learner before the instructor.
I would like to learn more about the topic of Personality in the class AP Psychology. Moreover, I would like to learn more about the topic of personality due to the magnitude of different things that can alter someone's personality interests me. Whether it be a tragedy in an individual’s family or a jubilant moment in his/her life, these moments have the chance of altering this individual’s personality. Also, I find it interesting that there is a plethora of different personalities such as whether an individual is social or not. Also, I find it fascinating how the media portrays different personality. That is why I like the topic of personality the best. If I had unlimited funds to conduct research in the field of personality, I would investigate alternate ways to assist people who are struggling with issues within their personality.
As an English Language Learner that I still am, I have encounter through my path many barriers that could have prevented me from over achieving and gotten this far in my career. Now I reflect back as I see young English Language Learners in schools that struggle but don’t give up thanks to such an amazing effective teachers that have dedicated their time and effort in helping ELLs achieve academically. I believe in providing now a classroom fulfilled with hope, care, over comers, respected with equality for all cultures and different backgrounds. My fluent Spanish to English translation could possibly be a challenge when not knowing to translate a specific word but will learn and do anything that is at my reach to get my message across. I hope to establish a classroom that provides the support for all students specially the ELLs that are my main focus to be working with. By providing appropriate visual prompts around the room, allowing ELLs to sit with English speakers, providing activities that are structured to support student-to-student or group interaction, and establishing an environment that has certain rules and routines to follow, I will be supporting ELLs as well as the other students. I will at no time discriminate against other cultures or different background beliefs.
I am now approaching the conclusion of my college career and starting to adjust to work life. This is a period of self-reflection and an attempt to put everything I learned into perspective. During this period of my life, I have been constantly thinking and contemplating my future. I feel very anxious yet nervous during this time while I am adjusting to this new stage of my life. When I was in High school my life was very structured, because I could be very dependent on peoples help and I obviously still lived with my family. When I went to college, I had to break away from that feeling of dependency and start the adjusting to adulthood. In college there was more responsibility and I started to become more independent. This was a crucial step in my life but choosing a career is going to be an even bigger step. It is a bigger step because; I have to start structuring my career goals and family goal for the future. At this moment all I can think about is my career, and how I can I keep improving myself for work life.
